#12799 Tiger to end months of silence on Friday

Posted by Gary on 19 February 2010 - 09:35 PM

i am dissapointed that so many people are backing him, the guy cheated on his wife, kids and his poor old mum and he didn't just cheat once. plus he cheated with really classy birds, come on porn stars, give me a break. i love tiger as a golfer but now i'm really not sure what to make of him. and all the millions of kids all over the world who want to be tiger when they grow up, not sure their parents want that now.

where i come from cheating is not a good thing, cheats cheat, lie, they are dishonest, unfaithful basically they are not good human beings.

tiger f8cked up, who cares but we shouldn't all be backing him for what he has done, the guy is a legend on the course but an a88hole of it.

#57650 2013 US Open at Merion Golf Club

Posted by Texsport on 16 June 2013 - 10:15 PM

All credit to the winner!

However, I think that the USGA went way overboard in protecting Merion.

Wet rough 6 inches deep, including around the greens, out of bounds 6 feet from the fairway, blind tee shots, invisible water hazards, and green speeds varying from one green to the next would make any course nearly impossible.

A course like this certainly won't help inspire new golfers to take up the game, and doesn't represent the game anyone in the world plays.

Luck becomes way too big a factor with this kind of setup.

If Merion was set up even close to this all the time, the club would have zero golf members!

#34659 Adams TOUR Idea Pro Gold Small Boxer Hybrids

I ordered two of these little guys (22* and 18*) after talking with Marcus. I can't wait to get the heads. Marcus is bending them to a lie angle of 55* and a face angle of 1* open... They're going to be some nasty, anti-left hybrids for sure!

#13620 Tiger to end months of silence on Friday

Posted by hitsalittle on 28 February 2010 - 10:05 PM

Looks like some people want the rules of BSG posting and a criminal courtroom to be roughly equivalent (Petter!!!) - people are allowed to have different viewpoints here, or even to be flat out wrong. Seriously, I love ya, guy, but you are downright defensive when it comes to Tiger - almost reflexively so. My opinion, and only my opinion, based on nothing but my gut and what I know about PED usage (see post in the "other" Tiger thread), is that I suspect he's used some form of illegal PED at some point. I have no proof and I don't intend to do anything more than share my gut feeling in this post - it ain't gospel, and I don't intend it to be either written or taken that way - I understand there are plenty of reasons why a reasonable person would not share my opinion, and that's ok - when everyone starts agreeing with me, we all have reason to be concerned.

Again, just a gut feeling - and, I might add, I make no judgements about it if it were true (which I have no way of knowing) - if it meant another $2M or more annually to me resulting from better performance in terms of stamina, flexibility, strength, or some combination thereof, and a doctor that I trusted devised a program with minimal side effects and demonstrated to me why I could never be caught, I would possibly do it - and that's certainly possible (the minimal side effects and increased performance part - the not caught part I'm not so sure about - I let my subscription to PED Testing Avoidance mag run out). So, IF he used, I make no judgements. Just like the sex scandal - I would like to think that nearly limitless money and power wouldn't corrupt me - but I can't guarantee I wouldn't interrupt a meal at Perkins to bang a hot waitress if I were in Tiger's shoes. I'm willing to try (well, the money part, but not the fame part) to see how strong I am if anyone wants to write me a check, though!

Petter, I hope you know I'm not attacking you at all - without your posts, this place would be like a church on Super Bowl Sunday...keep 'em coming. Of course, I'm starting to wonder if you're not connected to Camp Tiger in some way given your vociferous defense against these unwarranted and baseless allegations about St. Eldrick...if so, can I get a tour issued goodie from him?

#13384 Tiger to end months of silence on Friday

Posted by jjj on 26 February 2010 - 08:49 AM

NO!! He didn't!!

This proves you haven't done your homework. Tiger's PRP treatment from Dr. Galea was not illegal.

As for whether I believe who has or has not used PED's of any kind is irrelevent. Everyone is innocent
until proven guilty. With people like you always calling someone a rat just because there are other rats
doesn't do any good. It's a meaningless approach. Get some FACTS and make an astute argument. What
you have done here pales in comparison. Slinging insults at me and giving me massive negative reps is
not the way to a valid point. I'm getting the impression you are only interested in agitating the situation
with your hare-brained scheme to make Tiger look as bad as possible. Have at it, but, not too many will
take you seriously. ;)

I never said the treatment was illegal, that is your mistake. Galea is not licensed to practice medicine in FLA that is illegal and why would he solicite Galea and or other trainer's with ties to Balco. Sorry but no extra homework needed as those are facts and I have no idea what negative reps are or how to apply them. Unsure as to how you formulate opinions but this reaks of wrong doing no matter how you choose to spin it.

Posted by petter7 on 26 February 2010 - 12:39 AM

Wow, thank you for setting me straight!!! How dare I or anyone question the player formally know as Tiger. I guess you believed every althete that has made the same criptic denial when asked about the usage. Seriously though why wouldn't he use? The arguement that he wouldn't because of the legallity is humourous, he did receive the treatment from Galea in an illegal manner. No?

i didn't realize i had to have facts to back up personal opinion.


Is this your first day on the internet? If someone agrees, no facts needed; if someone disagrees you need 15 double-blinded cross referenced peer reviewed studies.

Get it together man, you need to KNOW this stuff..........

#38693 Swing Coaches

Posted by Texsport on 09 April 2011 - 07:50 PM

I'm sorry dude but I think you're missing my point. I'm saying that guys like Phil and Tiger seem to be LOST without their coaches holding their hand... their ability to hit more than 5 or 6 fairways and hit a green from 100yds has been rather shocking recently.


Since you admit that you're new to the game, it's unlikely that you have played much competitive golf. You probably don't understand that tournament golf is not the same as recreational golf. The difference is the pressure!

One of the main functions of a swing coach is to help the player understand their swing mechanics, and their individual tendencies. That means when they mishit a shot-----( and in professional tournament golf that is a small error)-----the player will know how to self correct, on the course, without the coach.

Additionally, everyone's swing changes from day to day. In fact, if their swings never changed, the same guys would win every week!

While watching the Masters, you'll frequently hear that approach shots to many greens must land within 3 to 5 feet of a specific target to get close to the hole. That's a requirement for near perfection. With that kind of demand on swing perfection, it only makes sense to use every advantage you can get, including a swing coach in preparation.

Though you say that Tiger and Phil can't hit a shot without a coach, please remember that coaching isn't allowed once the round starts and the player must self correct any errors.

Finally, if you become a serious player, you'll find that figuring out a good swing isn't easy. If it were there would be more great
players. Almost the entire golf community, world wide, practice incorrect swing after incorrect swing their entire lives, frequently looking for a magic tip to make them into a great player. This is a fantasy of course. The emergence of knowledgeable swing coaches is why a 21 year old is leading the Masters after 3 rounds. He has had the luxury of great coaching, eliminating the need to figure it out for himself. The most famous old theory about developing a great swing came from Ben Hogan, who advocated " digging it out of the dirt". hogan practiced more than anyone, but the majority of his major tournament wins were after the age of 40! He was no where near the level of today's young pros at age 21.

Why spend years experimenting when you can take a shortcut with good coaching. I'd advise you to do the same if you want to become a good player. The average amateur player can't break 100, even after many years of playing!

#18678 Phil at Krispy Kreme in Green Jacket

Posted by johnnypro on 15 April 2010 - 08:11 PM

Can we stop making Phil out to be St. Francis of Assisi? Please?
Phil takes the kids to Krispy Kreme! WOW!
Betcha Tiger would never do that.
He'd take his kids to a porn movie.
It's getting to be a bit much.
Don't forget.....3/4 of his peers still label him an insufferable pr*ck and for a while he could have been in the gambling wing of Tiger's rehab center.
They're just people. They do good things and they do things they don't want anyone else to know about.
Basta!!

#17446 Who Likes The CBS Masters Coverage?

Posted by Carolina Jim on 05 April 2010 - 02:24 PM

CBS partnering up with Augusta National Golf Club, bring to us each year the "BEST" in golf coverage. Everything from the opening music to the production of the action on the course to limited commercials is "first rate". I also like the fact that Direct TV has extra channels 701 thru 705, for extra coverage. The Beauty, Grandeur & Elegance of the Masters event is unequaled by any other tournament televised by any network. Nothing can compare to being there but the coverage on CBS is the next best thing.

With Surround Sound, HD or 3D, 50 plus inch screen, air conditioning, Lazy Boy, ice box full of beer, clean bathroom with no waiting, free parking, kitchen full of food...why leave the house, no matter who's broadcasting the event.
